This review is from: Smart Swarm: Using Animal Behaviour to Organise Our World (Paperback)Peter Millers SMART SWARM gives a good overview of one of the most focal research issues for complex system dynamics, i.e. how decision makers can interact and what kind of the collective behaviour emerges from simple interaction rules.
I'd recommend this book to anyone how may not be familiar with this field, but seeking an entertaining story about it. The references are good enough to pursue the original articles granted that the reader want's further in depth understanding.
For the curious reader thinking "cool - what's this complex stuff all about?" I would recommend this book as an easy read prior to reading Scott Page & John H. Miller's Complex Adaptive Systems, as Peter Miller's book gives a good story to remember, whilst Page & Millers provides a more in-depth explanation of how it works.
